Carex brunnea 'Jenneke'

Carex brunnea 'Jenneke' (Carex brunnea)

It's MUCH smaller than the Carex I bought at Malvern! The GC had a special offer on - and I got three for the price of two. They are in a group with Heucheras and bright Asters at the front of the wide border, where I dug out a lot of Lysimachia ciliata.

Isnt it odd how we hate wearing glasses, I have some really jazzy ones for the computer, now buy several pairs, they are very reasonable, so can afford to, these are red black white orange and grey stripes, I love them with a case to match lol
